What a great time to adopt! Now through the end of this tumultuous year 2020, Friends of Long Beach Animals will be sponsoring the adoption fees from the Long Beach Shelter, Long Beach Animal Care Services.
That means it’s a great time to bring home that cute puppy or mischievous kitty just in time for the holidays!
Did you know that when you’re doing your everyday grocery shopping you can help support the animals? Friends of Long Beach Animals is a registered non profit in the Kroger – Ralphs – Food4Less Community Rewards program.
That means every time you shop at either store and use your club card or Alt ID, they will donate money to Friends of Long Beach Animals!

Friends of Long Beach Animals recently supported The Little Lion Foundation and presented them with FOLBA’s matched donation funds of $10,000 from their successful participation in the Long Beach Gives fundraising event.
FOLBA is proud to support this organization which owns and operates Long Beach’s first ever kitten nursery, the Long Beach Paws Project. To date they have saved the lives of nearly 1,000 kittens! We wish them the best of luck in this upcoming year of dedication to all the little paws of Long Beach.
You can read more about the FOLBA donation and the Little Paws Project in the Long Beach Post.
ADOPTION UPDATE! We are happy to report that this sweet dog (Now “Rex”) that was found in Lakewood on July 26th has now been adopted! Thank you to Dr. O’Neill from Bixby Animal Clinic for giving this lost pup a new forever home! 💛
Rex was found wandering around Carson street in Lakewood in July. The entire community, and FOLBA came together to try and find this un-microchipped and un-collared pet’s owner.
After a few weeks with no replies to our reuniting campaign, all those that cared for this dog changed tactics to help him find a new home and what better home could he get than living with a veterinarian! Best wishes to Rex and his new family!
We’re humbled by the generous donation from Timmons Subaru of Long Beach as part of the Share the Love Event.
During the event for every Subaru sold they donate $250 to local community nonprofits and FOLBA is honored to be chosen again this year and to receive a donation of over $38,000.
Subaru is arguably the most pet friendly vehicle brand with their cute dog-themed commercials and their October Subaru Loves Pets Month to help increase pet adoptions. Thank you for your generosity toward the animals Greg Timmons and all of Subaru!
FOLBA was happy to deliver 175 lbs of Hills Science Diet dog food to Long Beach Animal Care Services today. The food was a generous donation from Banfield Pet Hospital and PetSmart and will help feed some of the many dogs at the Long Beach Shelter.
